Jay and Lila Cooper travel to Nepur with their archaeologist father to uncover the truth behind an ancient legend. The people of Nepur fear a dark cavern called the Dragons Throat. Deep under the earth the Coopers discover a bronze door that is said to bring death to any who tries to open it. But the Coopers are not afraid of any legend. They study the door, try to open it, and go on a mysterious and dangerous hunt for a special key. Is there really a massive treasure behind the Door in the Dragons Throat? Or could there be a reason no one has ever managed to open it?This was an exciting read, jam packed with Indiana Jones-type adventure and a wonderful plot for a book this short. Peretti is a wonderful storyteller who doesnt need hundreds of pages to entertain. The characters were brave, honest, and fun to read. I highly recommend this book for readers of all ages.
This is a great book. I like the topic. I am 9 1/2 years old and it was not to scary for me. It's like a Henty book but with a mystery with it. It made me excited to open my bible to find the areas that were talked about since it gives you references in the book. I would recommend it to others.
WOW! This is Frank Peretti at his best, but for the younger generation. As a grandmother I'm always searching for books to add to my library for "visitors". I would highly recommend this book for those who enjoy science fiction with some Bible teachings. It doesn't get 'preachy' but it stays on target for God's truth. It does get a bit scary & suspenseful but it seemed to be balanced with the theme that God will see you through.
